"... a positive cornucopia of musical genius ... among the most spectacular of all debuts ... her playing always blazes with a unique incandescence and character. The recordings have worn remarkably well and the transfers have been expertly done."
- Gramophone

"I can't imagine anyone indifferent to Martha Argerich's playing. This remarkable debut album has value not only for documenting an auspicious beginning, but in its own right as an exemplar of, at the least, brilliantly imaginative piano technique and musicianship."
- Classical.Net

Argentine pianist Martha Argerich, one of the great pianists of the 20th century, recorded this debut solo album in 1960 when she was only 19 years old. On the programme are such challenging pieces as Prokofiev’s Toccata Op. 11, Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6 and a couple of Chopin works.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
